At Risk of Falling? Most Chiropractic Clinic Suggests Calcium plus Vitamin D

Falling hurts at any age. Falling for older Murfreesboro folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing. Murfreesboro fall prevention is vital, and Most Chiropractic Clinic recommends that all Murfreesboro chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall prevention strategies as well as an innovative nutritional approach to fall prevention.

Fall Prevention Ideas 

Classic fall prevention plans function well for most Murfreesboro chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any tripping hazards, securing rugs or removing them, installing grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a home that is all on one level with no steps are all ways to reduce fall risk. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath or balance is important as those may also instigate a fall, also.  52.6% of patients with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to fall. It is key for these patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic can help evaluate health risks like these and others to help our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients remain upright! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental to keep you strong. As our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together, Most Chiropractic Clinic and our Murfreesboro chiropractic care patients uncover something that works!

Vitamin D PLUS Calcium 

Like including some nutrition: A current fall prevention proposal is to include calcium and vitamin D together daily. A review of 26 articles involving over 16,500 patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2 or D3 alone did not have such an effect. It is the combination that works! (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic sees this to be very useful when discussing nutrition with our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients, especially with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
